LET No cutting of vital programs
The state Legislature must increase revenue to address the budget shortfall rather than cut vital programs that help people meet basic human needs.
Cutting services to Minnesota's most vulnerable citizens is not an option. Cutting programs of service to people who have not benefited from the years of surplus would be cruel. Cutting state human services would provide a major hardship to the communities that would need to scramble to find resources to serve the basic human needs of the vulnerable people in their midst.
I look forward to Reps. Bradley, Kuisle and Bishop and Sen. Kiscaden addressing this human crisis with compassion and vision by increasing revenue rather than cutting human services programs.
